Em Hungry has been on a long hiatus. First, due to a tech job that sapped my enthusiasm for cooking. Next, due to a pregnancy that sapped my enthusiasm for any food besides crackers and lemonade. (And ice cream... it takes a truly catastrophic health condition to make me lose my taste for ice cream.) But now, I have a new baby and a newfound appetite for just about everything, especially chocolate cake, and this is one of my very favorite chocolate cakes. It takes pretty basic ingredients, so there's a good chance you already have everything you need to get started. Enjoy!
